Checking Up On Their Handiwork

Mystery submarine four miles off South Florida beach; flees after chased by boaters

"Ryan Danoff was fishing with two friends about four miles off Hollywood beach Sunday when he spied what appeared to be a mast on the horizon.
Funny thing: There was no boat underneath it.
Danoff, a Fort Lauderdale fish farmer who’s on the water at least three days a week, aimed his 31-foot center console Fishy Business at the mysterious upright and found himself eye to eye with a periscope.
“It was crazy,” he said. “If it was just myself out there I wouldn’t believe what I saw.”
Danoff moved closer. “It took off,” he said. Very fast, about 20 knots. The periscope sank beneath the waves, and whatever was below the surface blew its ballast, sending aloft a mighty hiccup of bubbles. After five minutes the sea lay once again undisturbed.
Danoff, 30, reported the episode to the Coast Guard. They said they’d get back to him, but never did. …
So could it have been a Navy sub taking a peek at the beach? “It’s kind of uncommon,” [Coast Guard Petty Officer Barry] Bena said. “But it’s a definite possibility.”

No, no foreknowledge here.

BP Chief Sold Stocks Shortly Before Oil Rig Explosion

"Weeks before the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion killed 11 and sent anywhere from 23 to 49 million gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, BP chief Tony Hayward sold about a third of his stocks, saving him 423,000 pounds according to Britain’s the Daily Telegraph, or $613,096 US dollars.
After doing so, Hayward paid off the mortgage on his mansion valued at $1,739,280. His total package was valued at $5,797,600.
According to the Daily Telegraph, “There is no suggestion that he acted improperly or had prior knowledge that the company was to face the biggest setback in its history.” Hayward disposed of his stocks on March 17, and BP stock has fallen by 30 percent since then."

Nor here.

Goldman Sachs beat oil spill debacle with BP shares sell-off

"Goldman Sachs sold more than half of its stock in troubled energy giant BP before the Gulf oil spill in April."

Nothing to see here.

Larry “Lucky Larry” Silverstein

"Larry Silverstein is the New York property tycoon who purchased the entire WTC complex just 6 months prior to the 9/11 attacks. That was the first time in its 33-year history the complex had EVER changed ownership."
"Mr. Silversten, who made a down-payment of $124 million on this $3.2 billion complex, promptly insured it for $7 Billion. Not only that, he covered the complex against “terrorist attacks”.Following the attacks, Silverstein filed TWO insurance claims for the maximum amount of the policy ($7B), based on the two -- in Silverstein's view -- separate attacks. The insurance company, Swiss Re, paid Mr. Silverstein $4.6 Billion — a princely return on a relatively paltry investment of $124 million."

Move along now.
